AFA Peddles Christmas Crap

The American Family Association wants you to know that they’ve got lots of wonderful Christmas gifts for you to buy that help fund their hate campaigns against gays, liberals and anyone else they don’t like. I wonder if they’ll be selling those burning crosses again this year. This is what they started selling in 2008, right after Obama was elected:

An artificial burning cross — the perfect gift for that friend who truly is dreaming of a white Christmas.

    Wow. They love to play hopscotch right on the borderline of plausible deniability.

    Does that come with a white cloak and hood ?

    I’m seeing a Jim Crow nativity scene here.

    Crap! A reminder of Christmas BEFORE I could stick my head in the sand, as I usually do between Thanksgiving and Dec. 26.

    Yesterday too… at Home Depot. They are selling Christmas trees… before Halloween!

    I’m sorry, I haven’t been reading this blog since 2008, so I assume you’ve covered this story. Literally what the fuck is going through their heads when they sell this kind of stuff. What. The. Actual. Fuck. I think one of the only ways they could have made it more blatantly racist is by selling burning effigies of Obama. Is there literally no depth they won’t plumb. Futurama stands more clear than ever right now: “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.”

    It’s actually a white-light-adorned cross.

    For the full effect they should set the lights to twinkle mode…

    I’m waiting for the black stuffed Santa with a noose around its neck for hanging on tree branches outside.

    It’s that time of the year again. Somethings don’t change like they aught.

    @dan4, grats on the pedantism.

    Consider the OP and comments as notice that some folks, like those in these here parts, consider the “white-light-adorned cross” a close enough association with a burning cross to be made to feel uncomfortable by it. Were you to put one up, some folks (maybe many) would take it as a declaration of a belief in white supremacy. This may be unfair – we should just ask you your views – but if you want to avoid that impression, don’t put one up.

    That reminds me, what day do we officially start our seasonal atheist war on Christmans? I always forget.

    “Jesus came for you” – I may have a dirty mind, but I had to double-check they weren’t selling condoms with that label.

    Dan4, I don’t care what they label it, but to even this non-USAian from the other side of the pond, that is eerily reminiscent of nearly every Klansman’s burning cross I have seen in so many Hollywood films, newsreels or print. Anyone claiming to not see that is either blind, disingenuous, lying or possibly knows absolutely nothing about US history.

    …emphasis on the “white”.

    I was thinking of buying some of the xmas ornaments that say “Jesus came for me!”, but then I’m not really one for bragging about my sexual prowess.
